    I would stick with the flag of the blood keep because otherwise you're unit will get shot at sight and get killed before they even think about coming in contact with the enemy.



    Also I hate the scepter of noirot, i never makes good it's point gamewise

    If your going with spears in the skellies try this balanced vamp:

    nightshroud, sword of battle, black periapt (can't go to the wight king, its an arcane item)
    dark acolyte, lord of the dead.

    This is my favorite vamp to stick in a unit of skeletons with spears as if he is targeted there are 5 WS2 S3 attacks and 4 WS6 S5 attacks before the opponent strikes at all. And he can raise the unit above starting strength.

    for the blood knights, leave out the musician and bring it down to 4 knights, that'll save you points and they still have enough attacks and protection to wreak havoc. use the points to buy a warbanner for one of your skellie units.
    Most Notable Achievements:
    Killed a Revenant Titan in one shot.
    Killed 900 pts worth of Blood Angels in 2 turns while only loosing 4 pts.

    Nightshroud doesnt make the Skellies go first they will most likely go las. it will probably be Vampire then enemy unit then skellies.

    War banner on a unit of skellies is stupid, think about it they are going to get smashed anyway if they get charged by a unit of knights or hit on teh flank i would make the vampire a bsb and give him avatar of death and dark acolyte

    With the BSB you wont need the war banner so u could free it up an give it to the Blood Knights, and the Blood Knight Unit doesnt need the flag of the blood keep its solid as is

    Musician in blood knights are all important they are 10 points which may save a 55 point model...well worth it....blood knights can usually hold there own against shooting with their armour...put them on the flank and they wont encounter much shooting anyway, 4x blood knights with musician and banner and the lord will almost never die...perhaps swap the banner of hellfire for standard of strigois for hatred.

    Good luck, and may the dice gods smile upon you and smite your foes

    P.S. Sceptre de noirot is awesome...it saved me against a skaven player yesterday

    Nightshroud only works if they enemy attacks the Vampire Directly.

    Comments

    I'm going to make several comments.

    First off, you seem to be making a list designed entirely to castle and force the opponent to come to you. You only have one unit, the blood knights, that can get anywhere at any speed. That being said if your going to create a "castle" strategy army you need to build your starting blocks of troops around that idea.

    I would drops the spears on the skeletons and change them for regular skeletons. I would make sure one block had a warbanner and the other had the banner of the dead legion. This lends strongly to their job of keeping combat resolution on you opponent and auto-breaking them.

    I would pull most all of the "fighty" elements off of my lord and go pure skeleton machine. Please give your lord the helm of commandment. WS 7 Grave Guard make your opponents cry. And the occasional WS 7 zombies can really surprise your opponents. I would give him something like
    Lord
    Level 3 Upgrade
    Waluch's Hauberk
    Helm Commandment
    Dark Acolyte
    Lord of the Dead
    Avatar of Death (Shield)
    Forbidden Lore

    That comes in cheaper than your current lord and gets more to what you need to be using him for. Keep your lord castled behind one block of skeletons and the block of GG. Use the new blocks of zombies you make during the game to protect the lords flanks form the inevitable stuff that will try to come hunting him.

    I would really consider dropping the blood knights for just black knights and using the extra points for more ghoul counter charge units to help your GG and Skeletons win the major combats.

    Walach's Bloody Hauberk and Dread Knight can't be taken at the same time as far as I know. Cause Dread Knight gives the Vampire Heavy armor.
